Sustainable development

  • Forest plantations in harmony with the environment

    For years, the Santa Isabel village, located in the district of Paucartambo, province of Pasco, suffered from the indiscriminate felling of forest trees, which resulted in the erosion of agricultural lands. Villagers have the custom of burning crop residues to remove the soil and prepare it for the new planting, but without the technical support, which causes landslides that affected the ground.

  • A project with long-term results

    Can you picture yourselves living without access to water and sewage? Not having running water to wash food supplies or wash your hands? For the Llaupi Community, located in the district of Ulcumayo, in the province of Junín, this was their day-to-day reality. Five years ago Statkraft Peru found that one of their basic needs, i.e. having a water and sewage system, was not met or planned for. A decision was then made to implement a project to install water and sewage systems in the Llaupi Community to benefit more than 500 villagers, through the preparation of the technical profile and dossier.

  • Optimization of natural resources

    The Huacar Rural Community is located in the Lima highlands, at 3237 masl, and the main economic activity is agriculture. However, for many years the lands were abandoned and dried up as water was in short supply. This situation changed when a project was implemented to improve the availability of irrigation water with the construction of a reservoir that was made possible with the support of Statkraft Peru.

  • Better capacity, better opportunities

    The Cahua Rural Community is located in the province of Cajatambo, in the highlands of Lima, approximately 3 kilometers from the Cahua Hydropower Plant, which is operated by Statkraft Peru since 2008. The community, despite having adequate weather, soil and water conditions, which are typical of the geographical area, does not make the most of its agricultural potential.

  • Uber Claros, harvesting success

    He gets up every morning at 4:00 a.m. to go to the fields and take a look at his livelihood: his crops. After that, at around 8:00 a.m., he goes home to have breakfast and then returns to the field to work the land. “There are plenty of chores, and little time to spare,” said Uber Claros, at 3500 meters over sea level, in the highlands of Lima.
